5.0 out of 5 stars Rich, detailed and enthralling story, 27 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shogun (Kindle Edition)
You need to give this time - it's a big book, and at times it can feel like it's progressing at a snails pace. Nothing could be further from the truth as Clavell weaves several threads through the entire book.

It's a great read, and really grabbed my interest in Feudal Japan.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Movies - Rubbish Format, 27 July 2012
This bundle is really annoying - I purchased it before Dark Knight Rises was released, so I could remind myself of the first two films.

I've also purposely purchased Blurays with digital copies, as I have an AppleTV and an iPad, so I wanted to be able to watch them on the move.

UV Copies are not digital copies - they are a rubbish, proprietary format that cannot be downloaded and viewed on an iPad or an AppleTV. Instead, you need to stream things from the Internet - not great, when you want to watch it on a plane or a train.

Why they don't allow you to download it through iTunes, I'll never know. Very annoying and very frustrating!

Also - I would class it as false advertising, as you never actually get a Digital Copy...

5.0 out of 5 stars More than you think, 30 Mar 2006
This book is something different from O'Reilly. Usually, you'd expect one of their books to plumb technical depths in order to supply the most detailed and complete reference tool for the application in question. As such, sometimes the books themselves can become quite difficult to read, and almost impenetrable for newcomers.
I'm glad to report that this book is not like that. Few writes with a casual tone, yet you are consciously aware that he is an expert in his field and he provides information at a steady rate, rather than overwhelming you with information. With intelligent use of figures and well planned chapters, this is a definitive reference tool for those who need to present data in graphical formats. So often when people produce graphs and charts, they end up like the nightmare Powerpoint presentation from Hell. Few gives practical advice on human perception as well as the relationship between information and visualisation that will truly help you to produce meaningful and appreciated dashboards, rather than the complex and downright ugly solutions that the author uses to show the worst examples.
If you are getting into Dashboard design, then this should be your primary purchase. If you produce graphical reports of any kind then this book is definitely worth a read.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great help for SBS novices, 11 Dec 1999

I can recommend this book to anyone who has been given the 'opportunity' of administering a SBS site. It explains most topics clearly and concisely, and was a great help in my learning of SBS 4.5.
